“Aubrey’s not a guy’s name,” Bobbi argued with the 36-year-old, who quickly shot back, “Yes it is.” “Have you ever met a male Aubrey?” she asked. “Yeah, you’re looking at him,” Drake rebutted. “You don’t even go by that ‘cuz it’s such a bad name,” Althoff pointed out, earning a laugh from her guest. “No, that’s not true… [I go by Drake] ‘cuz it’s shorter,” he noted. “You know, people with two syllables are way less successful than people with one.”
